Girls, I'm tired of seeing *this*! I want to see this again! (Although I *do* want to paint the outhouse/pool house.)
I want to see *this* when I go on my morning walks!
I want to see Micah and Bobby playing in the side yard with family and friends! (That's my Christopher home for a visit.) Look at all those green trees! See Pearis mountain? I climbed that!

Happy Monday, girls! Are you ready?

Hi, girls! If you've never heard my voice before, you can hear me baby talk and giggle on this video while I'm watching my new baby kitten play! It's about 2 minutes long.
Have a great day! ♥

Lindsey and I did a one on one vintage Valentine swap and Twyla wanted to send me some surprises, too! No complaints here! ☺ This is what I saw when I opened the box. Oh my, what to open first?! Wanna guess? It was hard to decide!

Hi sweet girls! I thought it would be fun to show you what I clipped recently for my decorating file!
I love this Pink/White combo with the rustic thrown in. I decorate my house each Spring with blooms from my flowering trees and bushes but I never thought of placing a container on the floor like this and using such large branches. I have 2 apple trees and I think I will cut a limb from one this year to copy this idea. Or maybe I'll cut from my Plum, Pear, Lilac, Pink Flowering Almond, Forsythia, Spirea... ☺ I love Spring!

Hey, girly girls! I'm sending some goodies off to the grands tomorrow so I made a little card to tuck in. Isn't it sweet? ☺ I'm kind of on a Pink check and Pink ric rac kick! I've been saving this bunny image for the longest time and I finally decided to just do it! Uh-oh, I hope the children don't see it here first since they like to look at Gramma's blog! I'll have to warn their Momma!The backdrop for this card is the last scrap of wrapping paper that I've been using for Elizabeth since her second birthday! I'm saving this scrap to use in scrap booking for her- one of these days! When I see it, I am flooded with memories of the first girl in our family. ♥
I hope you have an exceedingly wonderful day, girls!~ ♥ ♥ ~

When you play bridge, you have to have a little score card. What a great keepsake! Let's put on our pearls and go play, shall we? ☺

My sweet husband is *very good* about bringing me home boxes and bubble wrap and I'm *very bad* about letting them pile up in the craft room! But no more! Out they go to storage from now on so I can actually USE my craft room. What a concept.
And if you haven't already, be sure to enter our give away here.
And now, I just have to tell you all how much I enjoy my little boy. Sure, I would have loved to have a girl but boys are so much fun! A sense of humor is essential to enjoying them, though! Last night, we played, "Do Something Mean To Me". Sound like a boy's game? Micah made it up and sometimes I just can't get into it but last night, I was on a roll! It goes like this:
Micah will walk up to me and say, "Come on, Mom! Do something mean to me!" And then he'll get ready to dodge me while I try to catch him. That's when I have to have a sense of humour and a bit of villainy! AKA "think like a boy". ☺ So last night I did the following and more:
wrenched his nose 3 Stooges style-and hard! sprayed perfume on him, tickle tortured him, made him look in the mirror while trying to keep one of my pretty hats on him while I said, "Look at pretty Micah!" ☺ wiped his face with a dirty dish rag, made him my "pretty pony" but lead him to the toilet to get his drink ( but of course I didn't make him!) made him hit himself, made the pretty pony "eat" apple peelings, Ha-ha-ha-ha! All this is with much chasing and laughter! I would say, "Heeeeere pretty little pony or heeeere pretty little Micah...." And he would laugh in fear of what I'd do next and try to hide from me. So, anyway, that's how you make memories with preteen boys. Such things really impress them! ☺

Have a great day girlfriends!

Okay girls, I've just been livin' to show you this! I don't know if I've ever had so much fun making anything else in my life! This is a Valentine banner I made for Lindsey for our one on one vintage card image swap.
I also made this pink rag wreath for Lindsey. I love the way it turned out. I used solid Pink and Pink gingham rags, Pink glittery ric rac , Pink hearts ribbons, shimmery pink ribbon, Pink Polka dot ribbon and lace. It matches the banner. Choosing embellishments for my wreaths is the hardest part! Does anyone have any tips?
I kept putting the wreath in different spots to try and capture the glitter of the pink ric rac but I never quite caught it! I promise you, it's much cuter in person. Lindsey is a better photographer than I am so maybe she'll be able to capture it. I'll let you know when she posts about it.
Well, girls... I know my Christmas banner up on the top of my blog is a bit outdated but I love the pastel colors! I'm going to leave it up for a bit until I can figure out how to make my own custom banner.
